Former London pastor to be sentenced

[Source] August 29th, 2008:

A disgraced Baptist pastor in London will be sentenced next Tuesday on a dozen sex-related and assault charges.

A sentencing hearing was held Wednesday for 58 year-old Royden Wood, an ex-pastor at the now-defunct Ambassador Baptist Church.

He was convicted in April of nine assaults on three boys in the 1980s, and three sex-related charges involving two female church members.

Six more sexual assault charges were laid in July.

Wood’s lawyer argued for a conditional sentence but Crown sought a jail term given the lengthy abuse inflicted on the boys.

Outside court, Wood said he has `enjoyed jail,’ had a `good time there’ and that it didn’t scare him.
